Here's a recent waiting room knitting project. It is the beginning of a boot cuff that is a custom order. It is finished now and has been delivered.
To see what these look like when finished, I have a pair of tan boot cuffs/boot toppers here.
Every minute counts when I'm waiting somewhere or riding in the car. I love these portable projects! They make the time fly buy while waiting and I have something to show for that time spent. Win-win!

We always love seeing the first sign for Cincinnati when we're on the way home on a road trip. We had been out for two weeks so getting home sounded very, very good!

This display was at a rest stop in Missouri. We were on the expressway, not on the old Route 66, but this was so cool! The inside of the rest stop had a huge map on the floor of the entire Route 66.

The highlight of our trip to Branson, Missouri, was our ride on the Branson Scenic Railway.
What a fun trip! This was just fantastic!
All the best,

Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads out there! We're celebrating all the men who are special to us today.
And, continuing with our images from our recent road trip:
We hadn't been to Branson for 13 or 14 years and, wow, have things changed there!
The first evening in town we went to dinner at the Fish House.
So, we enjoyed the view, but wouldn't eat here again.
If you really like lots of spice in your food, you'll like The Fish House in Branson.

This is one of many rest stops that we visited on our road journey. It was evident the area needed rain. The facilities included not only clean and convenient restrooms (that building not pictured), but a picnic area with plenty of room for the kids, dogs, and even adults to get some exercise.
When I was a child and our family took road trips, rest stops were barely a place to pull off the two lane highway and were equipped only with "outhouse" rest rooms. There was usually a pump where you could pump your own water and perhaps a picnic table.

As we moved along on our road trip I worked on a large Christening/Naming Blanket. It's amazing how fast it goes when you're in the car for hours.
This pretty blanket is finished now. To see more views of it, click here.
All the best,
